Quote: "We just fell apart in our bullpen today. The fire got bigger and bigger and bigger, and nobody could put it out." -- White Sox manager Jerry Manuel, whose team couldn't hold a 7-2 lead.
It's a fact: Shortstop Omar Vizquel of the Indians, whose 70-game errorless streak ended last week, booted a grounder in infield practice. His teammates booed him loudly.
Who's hot: Red Sox closer Tom Gordon has not allowed a run in his past 12 2/3 innings, and has given up just one run in his past 20 1/3 innings.
Who's not: The Yankees' Chuck Knoblauch is in a 1-for-18 slide, and his batting average has dropped to .238.
On deck: Indians right-hander Dwight Gooden is scheduled to make his last rehab start for Triple-A Buffalo today.
